Mark Twain Was Right
Mark Twain Was Right: The 2001 Cincinnati Riots | Keith Rosson, Dan P. Moore
2 posts | 1 read | 1 to read
A new and unique graphic novel which charts the course of the 2001 Cincinnati Riots, the largest urban urnest since the 1992 LA Riots. Moore's book is an engaging work of journalism as narrative comic, tracing the riot's genesis from the senseless police killing of a 19 year old black man to the man's funeral six days later. What results is a tumultous cocktail of civil disobedience, frustration fuelled looting and police violence. An important chapter of American history in graphic novel format.
